Happy Tuesday everyone. I found this photo of me and my baby Layla right after I delivered her in 2012. That was the most magical moment of my life. It was also the time my private practice was taking off and I had to go back to work only 2 weeks after the delivery. Taking any time off would mean I would need to permanently shut down my practice, something I had been working for since I was 14. It was heartbreaking for me leaving my newborn every day. It was harder than all the studying, my two surgical residencies or anything else I ever experienced in my life. That was the time I almost gave up on my dreams and my career. But somehow I found the strength to continue and not feel overwhelming guilt as a mother. I wanted to take this moment and give a shoutout to all moms, whether they are working or stay at home moms. Being a mom is always a full time job and the most skilled and selfless job there is. If you are reading this and you are a mom or have plans on becoming one, you are a super hero and never think anything else. #supermom #positivevibes
